The drum appears in the mission, Final Showdown!, as one of Kharma's attacks. Should you not be in Fever mode, she has a chance of conjuring up the drum for use. When she drums "BADA BADA BADA BON", you must activate the Retreat song, the Storm Miracle, or a Djinn (Patapon 3). Otherwise, the beat of the drum will automatically cause your Patapons to perform the march command, heading towards the Zigoton Queen before being zapped with extra-powerful lightning.
The Zigoton Drum has similar beats to the Patapon Drums but with different names.
- Bada = Pata
- Bon = Pon
It is unknown if the Zigotons have a counterpart for the Chaka and Don drums.
- It looks similar to the Pata Drum, except with a circle on the top and demonic horns.
- The Zigoton Drum is the only known drum that can make two different beats.
- In the Patapon 3 DLC quest "The Witch and the Thunder Beast", the Zigoton Drum makes a second appearance, but along with the lightning being struck on the Patapons, the Thunder beast can also attack the Patapons, should they get too close.
- In the Tree Minigame with Ubo Bon, he sings "Bon Bon Bo-Bon" which is similar to the beats.
